Hampton is not a -big town, but It has
coppers. They are nut of the imported
variety, however, but men to the manor
born, and hence partakers o? that chiv?
alrous spirit which, howev-r much it
may pain some people from other sec?
tions of the country to hear it, charac?
terizes the true gentleman and Is there
fon_. a heritage of which Virginians are
proud. It is possibl- that Hampton's
coppers have faults, but they are able
with a good conscience to enter on. the
list of their virtues a profound respect
for pure womanhood and to lay claim
to thtocredit of being willing and ready
to defend it. So mu h foil- the coppers:
now fur something else.
The good people of the town %vere just
setting out lO att-.nd thti several
churches last Sunday evening, when a
young man, neatly attirc-d and fairly
good looking, boarded an Old Point car
at the power-lii use, in the West End.
'He hud com? from Newport News and
was on his way to the Chamlxjrlin,
where he is a guest. Ttve young man
was Mr. J. C. Quinn, twenty years old;
whose home is said to be in Washington.
He rode on th- platform, d spite the
keen air of the evening, and was accom?
panied by one or two P. ier.ds. Inside
the car were sevtaal ladl-s.
A little more than an hour before this.
Officer Joe Diestil a county policeman.
5et out on his usual evening rounds in
the West End. At Newport News ave?
nue he boarded an incoming car und at
the powvr-hitmse stepped onto the plat
farm of the Old Point car. in charge of
Conductor Frost. He merely glanced at
young Quinn and straightway forgot
all about him. Shortly after starting
Mr. tjuinn spoke to the officer.
"You are off duty." he suid.
"No. sir," was the courteous r ply.
"I'm just going on."
Nothing more was said' for a few mo?
ments, and the car sped on to Queen
street. Then, as Mr. Dc-jstil und Con?
ductor Frost tell the story, Quinn not
? nly l)can> extremely garrulous, but
very profane. His iar.gttage was such
that the conductor cautioned him not
to repeat it. But the youngman's tongue
had broken ioose and wagged like
the clapper of a btll. He berated the
town, it is said, and, assuming an air of
defiance which would huve done him
credit had' he been in tbe act of defend?
ing from insult the ladies who sat inside,
turned to ihe officer and said:
"What would you cops do i? I were to
put on my skates and the sidewalks
nr.d streets of this town should not be
wide enough for me?"
He was promptly informed that he
would be taken to jail, wivereupon he
uncorked a n.'w vial of wrath and dis
charg d the contents at Diestii. Several
times Captain Frost commanded Quinn
to be orderly, but he kept up the vio?
lent harangue until Wine street was
reached, when the- car stopped bo allow
some ladies 'to alight. Mr. Diestil stefp
ped to tbe ground to make room for
them. As he did so Quinn, who hr.d
ceased to speak, r newed the torrent'of
invictivv, advling words which it
would be dangerous to print and send
through the mails. This was more than
Deisti] ccilM stand. Springing to the
pla'tform he seized the off oder by the
collar of his shirt an?' dragged him to
the street. QuintrTought like a tiger to
free himself, swearing the white like a 1
man who had been trained to the busi?
ness. In the scuffle he viciously seized
tihofficer's hand and forced his teeth
through a pair of thick gloves into the
tlcsh. Then Deistil raised his club and
struck him. but the blow was not severe
enough to fell him. Meantime Consta?
ble JOfci Cunningham and Officer E. B.
Knewstep hastened to Deistil's assist
an- e an'i the young man with his skates
was hustled off to the-county jail. Mr.
B. B. Chiles secured his release- by be?
coming his bondsman and yesterday;
through his attorney, he pleaded guilty
before Mayor -Hope, paid ti-Je Uiual fine

Interesting Exercises at the Normal In?
Despite tfao fact that a sharp wind
-vhistled across 'the well kept grounds of
th Normal Institute Sunday afternoon,
scores of people turned out tij- witness
the mamUal display arranged arrang.d
to pieceOe the exercises in-'ihe chapel in
honor of the fifty-ninth" anniversary of
tl| i biVth oPSamuel Chapman Armstrong,
fofnd-i.' of the institution. Six com?
panies, headed by the Institute band and
commanded' by Captain R. R. Morton,
were drawn up on the meill, and after a
number of military evolutions, which
showed excellent training, marched Into
?ti.e chapel. Every scut in the tiiiidlng I
was scon Occupied and' many were
forcei' to stand in the aisle near the en?
trance. Th. ext>.eise? were conducted
by Dr. Frissell, principal of the institu?
tion. On the stage, near himi sat Pro?
fessor Francis G. Peabody. D. D., of
Harvard College: Robert C. Ogden. Wil?

The thought of Professor Peabody was

with a plan, or It may begin with a man.
If it begins with a man it is not buiKt up
?it has a, natural growth. "In a degree
unparalleled in American education this
Institution is the incarnation, of a per

General Armstrong was t>oi:n on the
Island' of Haiwaii, January 30, 1838. in
which, country his father was 'distin?

by obstacles which it seemed impossible
to overcome, and the numerous persomii
sacrifices which hie was called upon to
make in s-rder to accomplish the iraupose

Able Discourse by Dr. A. B. Woo'dlfin
Dr. A. B. Wood-tin, pastor of the Bap?
tist church, preached on. Sunday morn?
ing to a congregation that Oiled the
sacred edifice. His subject was "The
Band of Gideon," and it was treated in
a most entertaining as well as highly in?
structive manner. The story of the sins
and sorrows of the sons of Abraham

ha: vesting his grain in a secre t place;
th call bo delver Israel from the hands
of the Midianites, whose nomadic habits
of life led them to almost every part of
the land; the flight of the Hebrews to
caves and and other places of saf. ty.
when-, as Dr. Woodtfin declared, "prince?
ly Israel, instead- of burrowing in the
earth for refuge, should' have b-:cn
building citi 's;" the call to arms, the
test of character, the sifting out of Gid?
eon's weak and fiarful followers and. fi?
nally', the victory wrcugtit'by three hun.

pitchers, was r-.lated in that simnle yet
charming style which never fails to cre?

3AMBLED BUT ONCE.
Price I'aM For a Parasol by the Founder

31. Blanc, the founder of the casino at
Monto Carlo, wns very eccontric.
Ho was never known to pluy at tho ta?

was a somewhat costly experience.
Whilo ou a visit to the Wiesbaden casino
with Mine. Blrtnc ho was irr- tho habit of
accompanying her on a morning stroll
each day. During ono of theso walks
madumo complained of tho heat of the
sun and requested hire husband to buy her
a parasol. Accordingly tho two entered
a shop, where maritime selected a very
pretty article, worth SO francs?about US
is?which M. Blunc, with a scowl and a
muttered grumblo, paid.
When the casino opened at noon, great

ho was only going to remain a few min?

and, taking up his winnings, left tho orig?
inal stake on the table. For a second time
ho won, and had now got back tho price
of the umbrella. But not content, he ven?
tured another 2 leuis, which this time
ho lost. Somewhat annoyed at this, tho
j founder of the plaoe, doubled the stake,
I and wen, thus getting back tho cost of the
Determined, however, to regain his 2
louls, he stnked it again, only to see
it rnked In by tho bnnk. Thus ho kept
on winning and losing, but never ablo to
recover tho 2 louls, t.iil at last ho found
hi me elf 25 louls out, all the gold his pock
ctbook contained. A thousand franc note
tso had wns quickly changed and swallow?
ed up. Then, becoming exnsporntcd, ho
cashed his check for u largo sum, and, sit?
ting down, commenced tho battio in ear?

Blunc, his eyes fixed on tho treacherous,
pastcboardti, never budged from his post.
He kept on planking down heavy stakes
until the last deal was declared, when,
